OUR VISION

“To Know Him and Make Him Known”

“ஒன்றான மெய்த்தேவனாகிய உம்மையும் நீர் அனுப்பினவராகிய இயேசுகிறிஸ்துவையும் அறிவதே நித்தியஜீவன். பூமியிலே நான் உம்மை மகிமைப்படுத்தினேன்;

நான் செய்யும்படி நீர் எனக்கு நியமித்த கிரியையைச் செய்துமுடித்தேன்.”

யோவான் 17:3,4

 

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth.

I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.”

John 17:3,4


 

Christ wanted everyone to understand His mission: to glorify God by drawing people to Himself. He provided for everyone’s immediate and physical needs, but also prepared them to see their spiritual needs.
